We visited this site for the first time last week and found a gem the owners are friendly and helpful the site is in a great location on a working lock with great views of countryside. The site is kept clean and tidy at all time by a tireless crew taps and hook up points in abundance very near to York and surrounding areas. There is a local village shop a bit pricey but okay for fresh bread, milk and newspapers. There is a super little pub on site so we found no need to check out the others in the area. It has been mentioned in previous reviews that the shower and toilet block are in need of a refurb whilst I agree with this there are plans in for a modernisation but alas in the lap of the gods(council planning dept) We are looking forward to the next time we have booked to return in early august for a relaxing break

Excellent campsite. Beautiful location. Toilet block was basic but clean with fab showers. The cafe was outstanding. We had the Full English Breakfast and it was lovely. They catered for my 3 year old serving her food on a childs plate with childs cutlery. Only down side I thought they could have had a child play area maybe? Would definitely go again!

Recently tried more than 40 sites for the Bank Holiday weekend and managed to get in at Linton Lock. What a lovely site it is, nestling between two villages, Linton on Ouse and Newton on Ouse (both of which can be reached either by road or a pleasant walk through the fields).
We were told by a local that the chef in the Daunay pub in the village of Newton was taught by Marco Pierre White, no less, and that the food was 'to die for'.
The site sits at the juncture of a canal and the River Ouse, with a working lock just in front of the cafe / bar where people could sit outside and watch the boats and barges make their way through the lock gates.
We were given a nice welcome on arrival and the people working in the bar and cafe were very friendly. The shower / toilet facilities were basic but I understand that they are waiting for planning permission to do a refit. We will certainly be visiting again.

We were desperately looking around the internet for a last minute booking at any North Yorkshire site for Spring Bank Weekend, but realized we had left it a little too late.

Then we came across this one, it was to be our last chance, luckily someone had cancelled, and we were in.

The best move we made. We found it easily, Phil was very friendly, he even helped us manoeuvre our van into the pitch and gave us a run down on what there was on offer on and around the site.

My two boys were overjoyed when they realised the site was on a marina with a working Lock, and were even happier when they could even help in operating the Lock from time to time with the canal travellers, they have already told me they want to be regular visitors to this site.

The site was clean and tidy, and Phil was usually around somewhere if we wanted any help or advice.

We can't wait to go again.

We visited the site at the end of April 2009 with our 33 foot American motorhome. Situated right next to the river with lovely views, the staff were very friendly and we were offered a cooked meal in the pub / restaurant on site even though we had arrived later than planned.
This family run business deserves to do well, and their plans for the upgrading of the toilet / shower facilities should make this well run site even better.

Had a great Easter Bank Holiday at Linton Lock, it was my first visit, but I will be going back.

A well run site, under new family ownership, I found all involved in running the site to be helpful and friendly.

The small cafe and bar area is excellent, and although only bottled drink were available on this occasion, they were well priced. I understand pump's will be installed shortly, and in fact should have been in for Easter.

The toilet block was small, but is, in the near future being upgraded. The owners are just waiting planning approval, which is taking time, as the property is a listed building.

I too visited the College Pub/Indian Restaurant, on the night when the semi naked men were playing pool in the tap room. They were not from the RAF, they were actually a rugby team from Hornsea.

I found the Landlord and Landlady to very friendly, and enjoyed the visit.

There is another village 'Newton on Ouse' a twenty minute stroll, either along the road or the river bank. There are two pub's serving excellent food.

So plenty to do, or just sit watching the boats go by, I found it all very relaxing.

The only problem I had, and it was not the fault of the site owners, I had a couple of pigeon's that seemed to enjoy crapping on my motor home. But they say it is lucky, and I won a tenner on the lottery.
